Sleeping Sensibility: Percale Bedding

Your bed should be a sanctuary for comfort and refreshment.

In order to get the best rest, we believe in transforming your bed into a place that you love to fall into each night by investing in luxury bedding that not only looks beautiful, but feels great too. Percale fabrics woven from top-quality cotton are not only super soft, breathable and moisture-wicking, but can also provide the timeless style and finish you need to complete a polished look.

Percale vs. Sateen

In the heat of summer months, high quality Egyptian cotton bedding is our top pick for sleeping cool. When it comes to cotton sheets, there are two kinds of weaves that are most common: Percale and Sateen. While both fabrics are derived from the same material, the look, feel and performance of each varies.

A Percale is woven with a “one over, one under” weave that provides a crisp, cool feel with a matte finish. Sateen in contrast, is characterized by its “one yarn under and three (or more) yarns over” weave that create a silky, smooth appearance. Sateen’s weaving pattern makes it drape heavier on the body than percale. While both cotton-based fabrics are ideal warm-weather fabrics for bedding, think of light and breathable percale as your go-to fabric during summer months and opt for sateen during transitional seasons like spring and fall.

It’s All About the Design

From traditional to modern to classic and timeless, we know there is no single bedding style for everyone. From satin stitching to delicate lace insets to embroidered edges—the devil is in the details and our extensive collection of percale bedding styles were designed to offer the polished look your bedroom deserves.
